The “short bearing” equation of lubrication theory, modified to include the inertial effects, is used to study the influence of geometric deviations from the ideal. The turbulent nature of the flow is described by an isotropic apparent viscosity and a power-law velocity distribution. It is found that geometric deviations from the ideal are less influential than in laminar flow.
